Condolence

This is my try to give Tribute to the Soldiers of the war.
We can't forget the soldiers as well as their families so on this Remembrance Day lets give condolences their family too.

No matter for what, for whom, when or why but War is always a horrific thing, lose can't be fulfilled, war always leaves a tragic traces behind.

Quotes

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word" - Martin Luther King Jr.
